    guess?
    It will open 16bit tif's but some of the most used functions aren't supported, i.e. greyed out. You must convert to 8bit to use them. There are other cheaper or free editors out there that fully support 16bit files. I think PT Photo Editor 2 does for one. I picked it up for free but it's cheap at the normal price of $30. For me Elements was a way to get the latest ACR for newer cameras without going for the subscription.

    Here's another freebie (for another 12hours or so) Ashampoo Photo Commander 11 update to v12 for $15 if you like it. I don't know if it does 16bit or not.
